Statement of support:
As a co-operative we endorse the StART initiative, which dares to think in a scale appropriate to the scale of housing crisis. We encourage everyone to investigate how new housing developments could serve people by implementing a sustainable ownership. Our tenant-members can testify that the community-oriented model is viable and we hope to see it becoming a part of the St. Ann’s hospital redevelopment.
